I was antique shopping today and took my vintage banjolele with me...stopped in a vintage guitar shop and he saw my banjolele. He had to check it out...then he pulls out his 50s martin and almost made a deal...it sounded awesome...sucks i didnt get it.

That seems high to me for a '50s Martin unless it was at least a Style 1 or 2. Do you know what model it was? I guess if your banjolele is pretty low-end, that might be fair, if the Martin is above a Style 0. What did it look like?
